Overview of this book

Understanding solution architecture is a must to build and integrate robust systems to meet your client’s needs. This makes it crucial for a professional .NET software engineer to learn the key skills of a .NET solution architect to create a unique digital journey and build solutions for a wide range of industries, from strategy and design to implementation. With this handbook, developers working with the .NET technology will be able to put their knowledge to work. The book takes a hands-on approach to help you become an effective solution architect. You’ll start by learning the principles of the software development life cycle (SDLC), the roles and responsibilities of a .NET solution architect, and what makes a great .NET solution architect. As you make progress through the chapters, you’ll understand the principles of solution architecture and how to design a solution, and explore designing layers and microservices. You'll complete your learning journey by uncovering modern design patterns and techniques for designing and building digital solutions. By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to architect your modern web solutions with ASP.NET Core and Microsoft Azure and be ready to automate your development life cycle with Azure DevOps.

Chapter 8: Testing in Solution Architecture

In the previous chapter, we learned about how to secure an ASP.NET web solution. We also highlighted some key security recommendations to protect our web application programming interface (API), along with security best practices when it comes to hosting on Azure.

In this chapter, we will become familiar with the most common testing types you need to know, and when to use them.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Highlighting key testing principles
  • Learning about the main types of software testing
  • Exploring testing in Azure

By the end of this chapter, you will have learned about the various types of software testing that we can apply to test our software solution, with the aim of finding errors and then fixing them. We will also learn how to check whether the software works properly and whether it meets the requirements defined during the early stages of a project. We will also explore the testing...
